Characteristics of Sponges!

Some of the characteristics of sponges include an in-definate symmetry. It can vary from sponge to sponge. They also tend to be multicellular and contain few tissues and absolutely no organs and no nervous system. When they reach adulthood, they become either benthic or sessile, attaching to the ground or various other objects.

How do they reproduce?

Sponges can reproduce either sexually or asexually, releasing sperm into the water in which other sponges breath in, allowing for reproduction. The sperm can look like eggs or a multitude of gas.
